Frank Lowney sent me this link which raises the question of what exactly some universities and course providers mean when they use the word 'open', as in 'Massive Open Online Course'. It sounds good: "Interviews with the comic industry's biggest names such as Terry Moore, Brian K Vaughan, Mark Waid, as well as others address questions of gender representations and constructions involving both men and women." But you have to invest a significant amount of cash to read the online comic books hyped offered through the Comixology online store. If you have to pay to play like this, the course is not open, no matter what the proponents claim.
